抜粋

Additional fees for ward pharmacists' services have been valued for hospitals in Japan. However, the calculation period for services provided to inpatients in the psychiatric ward is limited to 8 weeks. This study aimed to reveal the need for the services of pharmacists in the hospital ward for inpatients hospitalized for >8 weeks in the psychiatric ward. Patients who were hospitalized in the psychiatric ward from September 2016 to February 2017 were analyzed retrospectively. The pharmacists suggested prescriptions for inpatients admitted for >8 weeks, similar to those admitted for <9 weeks, and this supported pharmacotherapy without exacerbating patient outcomes. Moreover, significant decreases in benzodiazepine doses were found between the prior and post prescription suggestions of the pharmacist for inpatients >8 weeks of admission. Healthcare expenditures were also reduced. These results suggest that the prescriptions suggested by pharmacists for inpatients admitted for >8 weeks in the psychiatric ward were useful. In conclusion, our findings show that ward pharmacists' services were necessary not only for the inpatients hospitalized for <9 weeks, but also for those hospitalized for >8 weeks.
